I have absolutely no idea :-). The main reason we're using ncompress in the xanim ebuild is because sparc was using it already (also .Z extension) when I merged xanim. If those files can be uncompressed using gunzip, it would be better to use that instead of ncompress. Meanwhile I've added ncompress to 'system', that can't hurt. Pieter
